Victory sees visiting Vics go top

Jed Legion 0

Selkirk Victoria 2


SELKIRK moved to joint top in the league with goals in both halves – from Tony Craggs and Ross Purves.

The game was moved to Ancrum with Jed’s pitch still feeling the affects of recent flooding and it was the visitors who created the early chances.

Ryan Clapperton curled an effort just wide of the far post and forced a great save from the Jed keeper to keep the score at 0-0.

Craggs got the opener on 25 minutes. After a driving run from the middle of park, he produced a great strike from 20 yards into the top corner with his left foot, leaving the score 0-1 at half time.

The second goal came on the hour mark. Steven Sharkey’s cross from the right wing caused panic in the Jed box and the ball fell to Purves who scrambled it into the bottom corner from close range.

William Mercer’s direct play caused problems for Jed in the second half and he almost made it three for the Vics, but failed to beat the keeper when he was through on goal.

The day belonged to Vics striker Darren Munro, who made his return with 10 minutes to go 17 months after suffering a horrific broken leg in the 2011 Collie Cup final.
